Marilyn Hewish and friend found a juvenile Stilt Sandpiper at the Western Treatment Plant, Werribee today. Although not coffee table quality, the photos she sent me confirm the identity. It was discovered on pond 85 WC9 between 12.30 & 13.30 today, Saturday 18 December and seen again at same spot at 16.00 by Dave Torr so seems settled. That is a pond on the left heading to the Conservation Ponds proper. This area requires a Special Access Permit with key issued only after induction.
My memory may fail me but I think this is 4th for Australia.
